Hyper Scape will be launching on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One come 11 August with Season One: “The First Principle”. New gameplay content, Hyper Scape Crowncast features and details about the game’s universe will be shown throughout the season. The open beta for PC will end today at 3PM UTC +8.
Earn 600 Bitcrowns on 11 August when you watch eligible Hyper Scape streams on Twitch for at least an hour with the Crowncast extension enabled, as well as linking your Uplay account with one battle pass point claimed. If you can still make it to the beta, you’ll need to play at least an hour as well.
Xbox One and Playstation 4 players who have unlocked or purchased Technical Test and Open Beta cosmetic items on PC will have access to all their items as cross-progression is supported across platforms.
“While the game has already been accessible on PC since our first test phase, Season One is for us the true launch of Hyper Scape.”
“We have leveraged our test periods to develop and release frequent updates, notably on the global balance. With those updates we are now ready to welcome console players into the mix, with lots of new content to enjoy.”
Graeme Jennings, Senior Producer for Hyper Scape at Ubisoft Montréal
Season One will see a brand new mid-range weapon, the Dragonfly, and a new hack, Magnet, to trap unsuspecting contenders out of a total of 11 guns and 11 hacks. Besides Solo and Squad Crown Rush, with additional limited time game modes planned.
The Season will kick off the overarching narrative, with players needing to solve a mystery of Prisma Dimensions. Collect Memory Shards to learn more about characters and events with a new shard hidden each week in the world. Comics will also be released throughout the Seasons to build on the story.
Kudos will be a new feature added to the Crowncast Twitch extension to allow viewers to support their streamers and react to the most exciting moments with in-game visual effects during a match. Kudos can be purchased with Twitch Bits.
Crowncast can also help viewers progress on their free and premium Battle Pass when they watch streams, or have streamers invite viewers to join their squad. Utilize the Vote on Events feature to impact battles in real-time, with a new event called called “Lethal Melee”: where a player’s melee weapon can eliminate opponents in one hit.
The Hyper Scape battle pass includes new customization items with 100 tiers of exclusive cosmetic items. Unlock the premium track for 950 Bitcrowns which you can get just by playing the game or purchasing through Ubisoft or first party stores.
Full details will be on the official website.
